Heart & Soil: The Revolutionary Good of Gardens by Des Kennedy

Writer, environmentalist and gardener Des Kennedy has gathered together his best, most outrageous and most contemplative articles and essays of the past decade into a book full of playful wit and insight.

Kennedy recounts one newspaper's April Fool's Day prank that had men across the UK buying heather in order to propagate a poor-man's Viagra, expands on his trials creating a sod sloped roof, admits he once wanted to write a stump-puller's guide to the universe and contemplates the dark beauty—and rat feces smell—of a voodoo lily. The articles are tied together with Kennedy's assertion that gardening is a revolutionary act of maintaining harmony with nature that intertwines the human spirit with the natural world.

A book that will appeal to any who admire earth's raw beauty, Heart and Soil is a collection from a respected Canadian who has dedicated his life to protecting and respecting the environment, cultivating his passion with a healthy sprinkling of humour.
